Book Review - Time Traveling Fashionista

The Time-Traveling FashionistaThe Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is a cute book with a cute premise, a girl with a taste for vintage clothing and dresses that take her back to the time when they were made. I had a hard time buying Louise as a seventh grader and an even harder time beleiving that she could spend time in school studying the Titanic, then wake up in the body of an actress on board a White Star Line boat amid a crowd of famous people who died on the Titanic and still spend a day not realizing where she was. Instead she marvels at the fashions, and gushes over one of her favorite historical designers. She finally finds a ticket for the Titanic, recognizes the famous staircase from having seen the movie and even wishes Leonardo (di Carprio) was there with her and attempts to get people to listen to her and change course before it's too late.

This book will appeal to girls who gush over clothing, and includes numerous full page spreads of vintage outfits.
